Ritchie Harkham's wines all carry with them a sense of purity and honesty. While the Aziza's Shiraz is a wine that could only come from the Hunter Valley, there is an extra degree of vibrancy and primacy to the wine. It feels like Hunter Shiraz stripped back. Laid bare. Unfixed and unfined. All that's there is striking, honest fruit. This wine is preservative free and completely devoid of adjustments in the winery. That's Ritchie's way. Surely one of the Hunter Valley's most unique expressions of Shiraz.
What it Tastes Like
Earth, polished leather boots, spice and a punch of fresh picked berries. It jumps out to meet you. Fleshy fruit tamed by iron fillings of tannin. Feels free and footloose. Fantastic depiction of this classic Australian wine style. New wave Hunter Valley, indeed.
This 2016 is a very supple and juicy Aziza's Shiraz. Produced from old vines around Broke and Pokolbin, this is a rich and flavorsome red as you would expect from the Hunter Valley but has brightness, freshness and real vibrancy. Super quality as always!

The Hunter Valley is the home of Semillon in Australia. Arguably the best in the world, Hunter Semillon is one of Australia’s most truly unique wine styles. Add to that the fact that have been producing some of Australia’s best quality Shiraz for over a century and you can see why this is one of our most loved wine regions. But with a new generation of winemakers comes innovation. Now we are seeing risks being taken, new varieties being planted and some inspired winemaking which is writing a new chapter in the Hunter Valley’s rich history. We can’t wait to see what happens next.
Long held up to the rest of the world as Australia’s flagship red variety, the mighty Australian Shiraz has undergone something of a renaissance over the past two decades. While our robust styles of Shiraz from powerhouse South Australian regions such as the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale may have put Australian wine on the map, Shiraz from our cooler regions are giving the variety a new look. Wines from Canberra, all parts of Victoria, the Adelaide Hills, and the Great Southern, are all delivering wines of finesse and spice set to a lighter framework. The tapestry of Australian Shiraz is richly diverse, and will only continue to develop and mature into the future.
